A fictionalised autobiography, published in three parts.

Boyhood: Scenes from Provincial Life (1997) focuses on his years spent growing up in South Africa.

Youth (or Youth: Scenes from Provincial Life II) (2002) recounts his struggles in 1960s London after fleeing the political unrest of Cape Town.

Summertime (2009) details the life of one John Coetzee from the perspective of five people who have known him. The novel largely takes place in the mid to late 1970s, largely in Cape Town, although there are also important scenes in more remote South African settings. Shortlisted for the 2009 Booker Prize. Coetzee was already a two-time winner of the award and it is for this reason that literary commentator Merritt Moseley believes he did not win it for Summertime.

Coetzee was the recipient of the 2003 Nobel Prize in Literature. He has also been awarded the CNA Prize (thrice), the Prix Femina Étranger, The Irish Times International Fiction Prize and the Booker Prize (twice), among other accolades.

This is a rare chance to purchase all three parts of Coetzee's fictionalised autobiography, in their first UK printings, and in excellent condition. The first printing of Boyhood is especially rare.
